Serving From the Heart for Youth is adapted from Church of the Resurrection's Serving From the Heart spiritual gifts program for adults. The adult program has helped over 40,000 people find their gifts, purpose, and passion to serve God through the church. When believers find their gifts and God-given passion and give them to the service of the church, ministries thrive.

Young people who go through this study will learn about spiritual gifts and what they mean for the church, discover their gifts, and find ways to offer their gifts to further God's work through the church.

What's Inside:
* 6 engaging sessions
* A spiritual gifts inventory and assessment
* An optional retreat module
